Over the years, Grassfire has offered many patriotic products to our team members, none more popular than our "God Bless America" yard signs.
There's a fascinating history behind this phrase and the song -- written by Irving Berlin -- that has become part of the very fabric of our nation. You may know that Kate Smith made the song a national phenomenon when she sang it on her television show 80 years ago. But Berlin actually wrote the song twenty years before that (about 100 years ago). But the song was never sung publicly until Smith's rendition in 1938.
Like many songwriters, Berlin saved every scrap of paper with every new song or partial song he composed. As was his habit, he'd put the scraps of songs in a trunk for possible use at a later date. So it was with "God Bless America."Read more
It got almost no reaction from the pro-LGBTQ crowd gathered for the first-ever hearing on the so-called "Equality Act"...
But I was floored.
Rep. Tom McClintock entered into the record a FOIA (Freedom Of Information Act) document indicating that the National Institutes of Health had approved lowering the age for children to be included in government-funded studies about gender transition hormones from 13 to 8. As in EIGHT YEARS OLD!
I asked the Congressman's office for the document, and they sent it to me. Here is the excerpt:Read more
URGENT GRASSFIRE CITIZEN ALERT:
Anti-Faith "Equality Act" Threatens Christian Citizens
TOMORROW, the Pelosi-led House Judiciary Committee will begin expediting through Congress a very dangerous bill -- wrongly named the "Equality Act" -- that pushes a radical LGBT agenda and effectively criminalizes Christianity.
This bill is not about "equality." It is about stripping away religious liberties and putting people of faith on the wrong side of the law!
The bill does not exempt churches, religious organizations, or Christian schools. In fact, this hostile new bill specifically forbids citizens or organizations from raising a religious free exercise claim as a defense against it!
Dr. James Dobson has warned that the anti-faith Equality Act "is nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to finish off religious liberty in America once and for all, which ought to be plainly obvious based upon a cursory reading of the First Amendment." Dobson also added, "By creating a protected class of citizens out of the LGBT community, this bill places Christians who believe in traditional marriage at grave legal and civil jeopardy."

The President weighed in on the collusion delusion:
GRASSFIRE (March 19, 2019) -- We have the names of all 12 Senate RINOs who refused to stand with President Trump -- and sided with Democrats -- in the fight against illegal immigration. This "Dirty Dozen" tried to hide behind the Constitution when casting their vote against our Commander-in-Chief and in favor of a resolution of disapproval last week.Read more
Today's the day for GOP Senators to stand with President Trump! Grassfire has learned that the Senate convened at 10:00 a.m. ET this morning to begin considering the resolution of disapproval (H.J.Res.46) against America's Commander-in-Chief for declaring a national emergency on illegal immigration.
When we learned this, our staff sent an email to the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), asking what time a vote will take place. Forty minutes later, they replied that it hasn't been scheduled yet. But 21 minutes after that email arrived, we received another one from McConnell's office. It informed us that the Majority Leader WILL stand with the President today when the vote takes place. In fact, McConnell said this on the Senate floor just minutes ago:Read more
GRASSFIRE (Feb 27, 2019) -- Shockingly (or maybe not), Democrats blocked the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (S.311) on Monday. Only three Democrats sided with Republicans in a 53-44 vote that failed to advance the lifesaving bill to the Senate floor. Two Republicans missed the vote due to flight delays and "Queen RINO" Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) didn't vote at all. Not that it really mattered, because those three "missing" GOP votes wouldn't have been enough to reach the 60-vote threshold needed in the U.S. Senate to approve any legislation.Read more
CBS News' chief foreign correspondent Lara Logan has some revealing things to say about the liberal media:
"Although the media has historically always been left-leaning, we’ve abandoned our pretense — or at least the effort — to be objective, today. … We’ve become political activists, and some could argue propagandists, and there’s some merit to that."
